Anyone want to try flashing a 5770 to a 6770?

Recommended Posts

I've been reading that the 6770 is little more than a rebranded Juniper sporting a spiffy new BIOS in CPU Magazine.

 

They say it wouldn't do much for frame rates, but add support for HDMI 1.4a (Blue-ray 3D).

 

Still, anyone with a 5770 should try it for curiosity's sake. :P

I dunno if I wanna risk doing anything to my computer right now...and I dont even use HDMI haha

 

I would do it if it was a performance boost but thats not the case haha.

Would the only difference be DX11? I can't think of any other reason to do it.

I have a 6000 series gfx card beat that! I have a 5870... so it's not 6000 series and no HDMI 1.4 which nobody use and more expensive( 3D gaming with 6770?)... they just probably want to displace some stock... come on 7000 series!

I've got a 5770 laying around in one of my parts boxes. If I get energetic I don't mind trying it.

6770 has a 128-bit interface and the 5770 has a 256-bit. I haven't dove into GPU bios' and the such in my education so far, let alone as to how those will effect each other, but thought I'd at least point out that difference. :) If some one does do it before and after benchmarks are a must IMHO!
